Zemeckis’s camera prowls the frame for info, juxtaposing astrophysical data on computer screens with surveillance footage and TV news. The whole universe unfolds as a mix of analog and digital. It’s about as cool as a field trip to the planetarium. Shameless, too, as it induces pathos with the mere idea of a girl loving her good dad. Not far from reality, nor is it far from a dream I might have had 20 years ago, when I’d go to bed thinking of UFOs.

It is among the few seriously pacifistic and philosophical SF movies, in the tradition of The Day the Earth Stood Still (Robert Wise, 1951) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968). It is, unfortunately, terribly uneven, and we must suffer a lot of rather uninspiring schmaltz and melodrama before the mystical adventure of contact itself begins.

The clearest stretch of Zemeckis satire in Contact is on all counts the weakest, both as an unimaginative rip-off of Billy Wilder’s Ace in the Hole and as a belaboring of the obvious. This doesn’t mean that Contact absolutely capsizes. The alien spacecraft itself superbly combines speculative design and sheer folly, recalling some of the best moments in Metropolis and Things to Come, and some of the high-tech human equipment is almost as much fun.
